The SEC has postponed the Arkansas-Missouri game scheduled for Saturday at Columbia, Mo. until Dec. 12 or 19. The game was postponed because of contact tracing and positive COVID-19 testing, forcing a number of Arkansas football players and staff into quarantine.

Missouri will host Vanderbilt Saturday. The Vanderbilt-Tennessee game will be also made up either on Dec. 12 or 19.

The Vanderbilt at Missouri game is a rescheduling of a game postponed on October 17. The game will be played at Noon ET on Saturday on the SEC Network.

“As we continue to adapt to the current realities, it important to remain flexible as we move forward in the final weeks of the season,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey in a press release on Monday. “Contact tracing continues to be the biggest contributing factor to game interruptions. We will continue to manage the remaining weeks of the football schedule to allow for as many games to be played as possible.”
